The Local Congregation of Yokosuka of the Ecclesiastical District of Tokyo, Japan on November 13, 2022 invited guests to the Sangyoshinko Center in Yokohama, Japan to extend aid to them, as well as share with them the pure gospel of salvation.

The Care For Humanity event and evangelical mission was held for the benefit of the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in Japan, Church nonmembers or members alike.

The guest were introduced to the Church Of Christ through a video presentation.

Brother Amante Rodriguez, district supervising minister, led the Bible study that ensued. He expounded on the truth that people should prioritize that which will ensure their salvation on Judgment Day, that is, being counted among God’s people or by becoming members of the true Church Of Christ.

Afterward, the brethren distributed the care packages for the guests.

One of them, Dianne Eleazar, a caregiver, who “hoped that a better means of livelihood I will find here than in Manila” yet also experienced “hard times specially during the pandemic,” said. “This activity of the Church Of Christ truly gave us more than what is material but even more, enlightenment for our souls.”

Admiring the Church’s efforts, Nidalyn Yagono, another guest, expressed, “It is so good to know that there are people like you who are sincere in helping out the needy. Japan might be industrial indeed, but receiving God’s promise of assistance is a reason for us to have hope for the future.

Eric Ferrer, the head deacon of the Yokosuka congregation shared, “We are thankful to the Lord God for granting success to our activity. Our efforts paid out. The guests not only were delighted with the goodwill bags, more importantly, they expressed gratitude from hearing the pristine words of the Lord God. We will continue to pray to the Lord to call more people in this place and we promise to be united in all the Church works.” — With reports from INC News Section
